what I like about McKinney BOYD high school is that this year I was a freshman and its not at all what you think, the teachers and even older students were very inviting and do not mind helping you. One thing that I really like is that there are LOTS of clubs that you can join and the staff encourages us to join a club and get involved, its a lot of fun when you get out and do stuff with the school. Another good thing is that you have a lot more freedom that can be a good thing but if you abuse it at school that can take it away from everything. The teachers want to help you be successful and do good later in life if you are not respectful to them it will come and bit you in the butt. Overall i would say that i really like this school so far!

Mckinney Boyd has a very inviting environment. The teachers are wonderful and the class options are endless. You can take so many classes that can fit the career you want to pursue since you can take classes at the other Mckinny schools as well while still enrolled at Boyd. However, Boyd is not as updated as the other schools in the district, so the facilities aren't as amazing, but all in all, I am proud to be a Boyd Bronco!
McKinney Boyd High school is a school with a substantial amount of resources. The school has some very phenomenal teachers; some of the teachers there have such passion for the subject, compassion for the welfare of the students, and go to overwhelming lengths to impact their students positively for years to come. On the flip side, there are teachers there who are not so serious about their jobs. I have witnessed instances where these teachers have blatant disrespect for students and even violate many district and state rules. I was part of a school sports team that routinely had prayers led by the coach before games. My high school graduation was held in a mega-church, where one of the student speakers gave a speech about how dangerous it was for anyone to not consider following the gospel. As far as diversity and religious inclusion goes at McKinney Boyd, I believe there is a very long way to go.
